Don't worry about the "missing registry keys" part of the event data.
That text seems to appear whenever a cygwin process generates an event
log entry; it does not indicate a specific problem.  The only
pertinent part of the event data is the text that follows "... is part
of the event:".

Did you check /var/log/postmaster.log?  It might indicate why
postmaster failed to start.

If your Win32 system restarts without the postmaster process exiting
cleanly, such as happens if the machine is power-cycled, the
postmaster.pid file may be left over and postmaster will refuse to
start.  In that case, simply delete $PGDATA/postmaster.pid and then
try starting the postmaster service again.
